Armed Men Rob Construction Workers

Three men brandishing a shotgun entered a construction site in the 20500 block of Conery Grove Drive in Porter, Texas late Saturday afternoon robbed workers of money and property before fleeing the robbery scene on foot.

Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office immediately responded to the location where the robbery had occurred at approximately 4:20 p.m., and were able to quickly radio a description of the three suspects.

While searching the neighborhood, a Sheriff’s deputy was flagged down at a second new home construction site in the 21400 block of Lindell Run Drive, said public information officer Lt. Brady Fitzgerald with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were advised that three gunmen matching the same description as in the earlier robbery had just held up a construction worker by shotgun at a Lindell Run Drive construction site. The site foreman was able to provide deputies a description of the suspects’ vehicle as they fled.

Another subsequent Sheriff’s unit was able to match the fleeing vehicle with a car attempting to leave the area. The suspect vehicle was stopped, the suspects detained, and property stolen from both locations, along with a shotgun, was discovered inside the vehicle.

Deputies subsequently arrested Jamichael Sasser, 20, Malcolm Green, 20, and James Balca, Jr., 20, and each were charged with several counts of aggravated robbery.
